Gardeners' Notes:

Positive coriaceous On Jun 2, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

A very beautiful white upright phlox. This is short (not over 18", and in my garden not much over 12") and self-supporting. Blooms very early and long, after 'Morris Berd' but long before any of the garden phlox (starting in June here, Boston z6a). It is reputed to be highly mildew resistant, and it has never shown any trace of mildew here.

Highly adaptable about soil type or pH.

Propagate by division in early spring, or by rooting stem cuttings.

Minnie Pearl was discovered growing along the roadside in Kemper, Mississippi by plantswoman Karen Partlow. It is widely believed to be a naturally occurring hybrid of P. maculata x P. glaberrima. Charles Oliver believes this is pure Phlox carolina and not a hybrid.

Plants was from reputable nursery, bluestone perennials, but it is much taller than its name suggests. Not sure if It was mislabeled or just likes my yard, but it's close to 4 feet. Nice bushy habit, thrives with little care. Grat plant!
